Out With the Old

This week several of my favorite images that were photographed during 2007 are not only here in my final blog for 2007, they are available for sale on eBay.
Both are open edition black and white silver gelatin prints on fiber paper printed by me to archival specifications. The images are 8 by 12 inches on 11 by 14 inch matte paper. The starting bid for both is $10.00, which is considerably less than the amount charged for gallery prints on my website.

The first image displayed in this blog is of model Dwain Leland. The shot comes from one of my favorite shoots of the year.

The second image is of Alan Demond, an amazingly gifted bodybuilder.

I enjoyed working with both of these models so much that I shot them twice and each time the results of our creative collaboration were amazing.

The image of Dwain is available at this URL

The image of Alan is available at this URL

Since the image of Alan is a full frontal, you will need to have your eBay filters set to allow access to items for Mature Audiences before you can see it.

I have two other photographs listed at the same time. One more of Dwain and one of Olivier Herranz.

Sean IR

This week the images are infrared photos of Sean from my recent photo shoot with him.

After you finish enjoying the images in my blog, take a look at my website, which has been refreshed with all photo galleries and images.

The galleries are built with a freeware tool called jalbum. Not only does it make it easier for me to create new galleries, which means I will be able to update my website more frequently, it also provides a link from each image to purchase gallery prints.

Until now I have only refreshed my web site about once a year because of the effort involved in formatting the images for the web and constucting the galleries in html.

Tree Trunks

The tree trunks to the left belong to Sean and are the photo shoot last week.

This image was shot digitally and composited to darken the background.

Sean - First Light

This Sunday the image is of model Sean J. from a photo shoot this afternoon. The original image is digital. It has been turned into a black and white image, toned and then Orton-ized, if I may create a new word.

The second image from the same shoot I left as a full color image.

Alex Orton

Another image of Alex W, this one edited in Photoshop with the Orton effect. This is the first time I have tried this on a black and white image. It struck me the other day that applying this effect on a black and white image might approximate some of the work I have been doing with infrared film. It does create some of the softness and the glow of the IR film, but the effect is still somewhat different. In some ways it is more interesting, but not enough for me to put away the IR film just yet.

Arch Again

You are not imagining it. You have seen this image before. I don't ordinarily repeat photographs in my blog, but this is a special case.
This weekend I spent some time in the darkroom and made several prints of Alex Westfalen, including this one.
I have put the print up for sale on eBay today.
The print is a silver gelatin print on glossy fiber-based paper, printed to archival specifications.
The image itself is 8x12 inches printed on 11x14 inch paper.
The starting bid is only $10, although there is a $6 shipping fee to points in the US.
Although I have always offered prints of my work for sale, this is the first time I have offered one of the items from my blog on eBay during the week it appeared in the blog.
The normal price for this type of print on my website would be $75, so if you're lucky you could grab this one for a pittance.
If this auction is successful, expect to see more coordinated print sales in the future.

Hanging Around

This image is from the recent photo shoot with model Kali. The image has been toned in Photo Shop.
Kali, like Damon before him, has names tattooed on his forearms.
